XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr.1.0 A Pro Review

XYZ Printing da Vinci Jr.1.0 A Pro Review

The XYZprinting da Vinci Jr. 1.0 A Pro is a 3D printer that can turn plastic filament into a variety of items. It provides an experience that should grab the interest of youthful users while also providing add-ons to enable more experienced users to avoid obsolescence. Only a clumsy filament-feeding method found throughout our testing keeps it from being a top pick.

Connectivity and Software:

The built-in touch screen of the da Vinci Jr. 1.0 A Pro allows you to print 3D models and other digital artworks. You have two options for connectivity: you can print to an SD card or connect via USB to a computer using the provided adapter. On the LCD, view the files on the SD card and select the one you want to print directly from the card.

Quick Assembly:

It only takes a few minutes to unpack and assemble the bright orange printer. Hang a spool of filament from the left side of the printer’s holder and feed it into the feeder right above the spool holder. The filament may be loaded and unloaded using commands on the front control panel.

Care and Feeding of Filament:

Install the XYZware suite of software, either from a supplied SD card or from XYZprinting’s website, after you’ve prepped the 1.0 A Pro for printing. Getting the filament to feed properly from the spool to the extruder assembly is the most difficult component of the setup. Much of this is dependent on the filament-feeding guide tube being properly seated. The spool is then fed into the bottom of the filament feeder, with a lever pressed down to clear its passage upward into the guide tube.

Almost as Pretty as a picture:

I printed numerous reference/benchmark objects on the Jr. Pro and a Monoprice Voxel to assess print quality. The fishing rod holder and smokestack are two items to look for, both of which should be circular and have smooth lines. If you look inside the cabin of the blue Benchy, which was printed by da Vinci, you can see the steering wheel and strings. These kinds of reference points can be instructive in terms of output quality and the results of using default slicer software settings.

The amount of stringing in different regions of the object is the most striking feature of each of these prints. The general quality of the numerous test things I printed on the da Vinci ranged from very good to exceptional, and stringing is a problem that can be readily remedied.

A newbie- Friendly Focus:

da Vinci Jr. 1.0 from XYZprinting. A-Pro is a 3D printer with rounded corners and an angled top edge that is enclosed in a closed frame. Its closed frame eliminates both noise and the risk of inadvertent burns from the extruder’s hot metal. Polylactic acid (PLA), the most commonly used filament, is simple to work with and odorless. It’s a good option for 3D printing newbies, (supervised) kids, and classrooms.

The da Vinci Mini and 1.0 A Pro 3D printers from XYZprinting are intended to be smaller than the Monoprice Cadet and Polaroid PlaySmart models, but larger than the Monoprice Cadet and Polaroid PlaySmart models. Their gigantic frame allows for a big build area (6.9 inches in each dimension), which is slightly larger than the smaller printers, but not significantly. Add-ons are supported on both printers, as well as the usage of third-party filaments and software.

A 3D Printer with Zap:

 you can acquire a da Vinci printer with a laser engraving module, which replaces the extruder head and allows you to engrave on non-reflective materials like cardboard, paper, and cork. The module is not available on 3D printers from other manufacturers. It “engraves” by burning the material’s surface, so there’s no need to be concerned about the smell of burned material bothering you or setting off the smoke alarm.


The closed frame and PLA-centric bending of the XYZprinting da Vinci Jr. 1.0 A Pro are excellent for newbies to 3D printing. It has enough versatility and add-ons to satisfy intermediate users. The printer’s major selling feature is its huge build volume, which allows customers to print far larger objects than most open-frame budget printers can.


  • Large construction area 
  • Print bed that self-adjusts
  • Compatible with filaments from other manufacturers 


  • There is no heat on the build plate. 
  • Detachment of the guide tube is common.


The da Vinci Jr. 1.0 XYZprinting A Pro is a low-cost closed-frame 3D printer with a large build capacity and decent overall performance, but a possibly problematic filament-feeding method.
